Tehan Picking Up Aces Left and Right

[user153638] • Level 7: 200-400, 50 ante

Joe Tehan has been on a little heater as of late. In fact, if you believe his table, he’s picked up aces three times in Level 7. In the latest instance of pocket rockets, Tehan engaged in a preflop raising war with an unknown opponent, who ended up getting his stack of 18,000 or so in the middle.

Tehan: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Opponent: {j-}{j-}

The {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop was gin for Tehan, which meant his opponent needed to catch either running jacks or straight cards. The {J-Diamonds} turn kept the former option alive, but the one outer would not come as the {5-Clubs} blanked on the turn to send the robust pot to Tehan.
